    Battery options

    Hey guys I will be ordering my new battery and mount for the 15f project in the next week and I need to figure out what to get. I am looking at odyssey and braille so far but I am open to options, it needs to be an AGM and less than 13lbs. Cost does not matter too much but I would like to keep it reasonable (no lithium ~$1200)

    The stock battery is a Yuasa YTX20HL-BS
    The Odyssey is a pc545
    The Braille is a B14115

    I am relocating the battery to over the driveshaft because the yellow racing ecu does not fit in the stock location and I will be using the battery box as the new mount for the ecu.

    I don't know all that much about batteries so I appreciate all y'all have to offer.

    Thanks

    Sean

    EVERY ski I have evr owned has had a GENUINE Yuasa battery

    they all lasted atleast 3 years

    So for my way of thinking they represent a good value and great return for their cost

    You may want to check out DEKA brand as well. They do make an exact replacement for YTX20L BS. It is the same maintenance free sealed type. However, the major difference is that once the voltage drops very low, say < 7 volts. The Yuasa never comes back to life even after 24+ hour charging. The DEKA does amazingly. And I experienced it. Interestingly both are manufactured in Redding, PA.

    You are right about the yuasa, when mine went dead after 3 years, it was dead dead, I went out on it once when the battery was on its last legs and it was scary to say the least.
